Sometimes immediately after a hard workout, a protein shake doesn’t cut it. Sometimes I want to eat something that can restore the glycogen in my muscle with healthy carbs, whilst also having healthy fats and protein to rebuild and recover.
There’s a ton of protein bars out there, but so many of them have one or two ingredients that I don’t like, such as e-numbers or colours and preservatives. Plus, even the good ones can be pricey to buy all the time if you’re working out 6 days a week.
So here’s my own recipe for a healthy protein bar. You can add gojis instead of the raisins if you’d like, along with any other of your favourite dried fruits, such as mulberries.
If you like things sweeter, add 2 tablespoons of honey or coconut nectar. If you can get dairy free chocolate chips, a few of those would go down a storm in these too!
